Give each a piece of bubble gum. The one that blows the biggest bubble wins a prize. Each child gets to keep their gum.
Have children paint clothes pins with bright colors.
Use a clean jar such as a peanut butter jar or coffee can (cover can edges with tape). Use a large-mouth container for younger children and a small-mouth container for older children.
Place the container on the ground. Draw a line on the ground.
Give each child the same number of clothepins. The child stands at
a line and attempts to drop the clothespins in the jar. The child who gets the most in the jar wins.
The child stands over the jar and drops a clothespin in the jar. Each time a clothespin lands in the jar the child takes a step backward to see how far they can move away from the jar and still toss a clothespin in the jar. The child with the larger distance wins.
Cut construction paper to fit the pie tin. Place the paper in the pie tin, drop different colors of paint onto the paper. Place a marble on the paper and have the child tilt the pie tin to roll the marble around and through the paint to create a great art work.
